I have been reading your posts from the beginning, the troubles with the local doctors and then the difficulty with MDA, etc., so much your dad and you have gone through already.

I have been praying for you and your family all this time, that you might find a new doctor, maybe someone with a newer and better treatment, someone who could offer you hope and with a better attitude than you have been seeing.

I don't know why so many are against the radiation. This is a new technique, isn't it? He is a good candidate. Why not take the opportunity to try something different? (aside from quackery, of course!)

The one thing I might want to confirm would be that he could still take chemo in the future if needed. The radiation won't cause it to be ineffective or undeliverable or anything like that?

Nobody can tell you what to think and do, but if you are collecting opinions, I think your dad should do the radiation. I think it sounds very promising.
